Splash into Whale Watch Season in Hawaii with “Child FREE” Special

Are you ready to have a whale of a time? Star of Honolulu sure is! Hawaii’s favorite Humpback whale visitors are returning to our islands’ warm waters, and we’re inviting visitors and kamaaina alike to climb aboard the STAR for a whale watching adventure they’ll never forget! From January 2 to April 5, 2019, we’re offering Hawaii’s most popular whale watch cruise with guaranteed whale sightings and a “Child FREE” special.

Throughout whale watch season, we’re inviting children ages 3 to 11 to cruise FREE with each paying adult aboard the Premier Whale Watch and Early Bird Whale Watch cruises. Bring the whole family for a fun-filled day of spotting these majestic ocean creatures in their ocean home! Then learn from our friendly crew of certified Naturalists, who love sharing their knowledge through informative displays, narration, handouts and a fun kids program.

Equipped with a 60-foot high observation deck, four walk-around decks and three types of stabilizers, the Star of Honolulu is the ultimate tour vessel to view Humpbacks in their natural habitat. Best of all, you’re guaranteed to spot whales during the tour! If you don’t see a whale, you’ll receive a free return “Whale Check” to try again (meal and transportation not included). We can’t wait to welcome you aboard this whale watch season!

The Early Bird Whale Watch cruise departs at 8:45AM and returns at 10:45AM, while the Premier Whale Watch cruise departs at noon and returns at 2:30PM. Guests can opt to add on either a hot breakfast buffet on the morning cruise or the delicious Taste of Hawaii buffet lunch on the afternoon cruise.
